Martin Sparrow appointed to the CTBUH Height and Data Committee

By Arney Fender Katsalidis

We are delighted to announce that our Director, Martin Sparrow, has been appointed to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) Height and Data Committee.

The Committee was originally created to provide guidance in refining the official Height Criteria used to define, measure, and study tall buildings. More recently, its mandate has been widened to embrace other aspects of building data and measurement. The Committee has also influenced many compelling research endeavours and prompted provocative conversations with the public about the nature of tall buildings and the trends surrounding them.

Given the evolving nature of the challenges, drivers, and technical considerations for tall buildings, the Committee now embraces a greater diversity of disciplines and geographies, with the goal of not only improving its outputs, but broadening its mission to incorporate a wider set of responsibilities.

Martin’s appointment is due to his wealth of experience and specialist expertise in tall buildings, sustainable design, deep energy retrofits and re-purposement of existing tower assets in the commercial and institutional sectors. Martin’s wide-ranging portfolio and a global experience includes North America and Europe and focuses on sustainable design in the commercial sector. His work includes the first LEED® CS Gold Certified project in Canada, Calgary’s Bankers Court office tower.

Martin’s appointment is one of a number of senior figures, including the new Chair of the CTBUH Height and Data Committee, Scott Duncan, Partner, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
